is this hypothetical? or did it actually happen to you? because honestly... I have no idea. I dont think the drone can be stunned... so it'd probably be destroyed if anything... i think... o_O

Yeah, aliens jumping down on X-Com personnel make this happen. Sadly, you can't do the same. ;)

Oh man! That's too bad! But XCom being able to would be easier to abuse..

This also lends credence to someone who said they had seen a civilian stun a sectoid that way.. If alien AI can do it, it seems likely civilians can too..

Yeah, it has happened to me, a couple times...  the drones are out first, and tend to hug walls, so they tend to get landed on a bit.

and it crashes with the Commendations mod at the moment. :(

Cheers, Ivan :D

XCom CAN do it... but only when running in panic. I wish the option to jump on alien's head would be enabled, it takes way too much luck and thinking to make it happen for any abuse to be possible.

This thing is SO OBNOXIOUS! I can't believe no one's complained about it. I gave it super reactions as a way to avoid alien reaction fire (aka psuedo stealth) but all it does is unload its popper at the first thing to cross its path -_-'
anyway... i'm gonna give the thing an update. fix that for one thing. stupid pop launcher... those rounds aren't free! thats tax payer's money you know?!

Remove the Snap shot option, leave just the Aimed shot. This way the drone won't reaction-fire any longer.
